Japanese ship building marine engineering and service company Imabari Shipbuilding, with the cooperation of Marubeni Corporation,has secured a newbuilding order of twelve units of 11,000TEU Container Carriers for Evergreen Line, Taiwan.

Having dimensions of about 334m in length with about 48.4m breadth service speed in about 23 knots, loading capacity is over 11,000TEU, said a press release.

"Like our other Ultra large-size containers with track record, this Vessel is adopted with eco-friendly hull form design and Twin-Islander enhancing more loading capacity to compare with our former design," it said.

Also, she is able to go on many service routes such as between Asia - North/South America - Europe flexibly to restrict her breadth below 49m for passing through the new Panama Canal, according to the release.

"Imabari is very proud of already having built over 200 units of container carriers, including the ultra-large 20,000TEU type which we delivered last year," said the statement.

Furthermore series of 14,000TEU and 20,000TEU types are scheduled to be deliver in this year.

Through developing better and safer newly-designed Vessels, Imabari will continue to move forward for diligent shipbuilding and contribute for safe voyage and satisfying ocean going cargo demand, it said.
